In 2022 the journalist Eva-Lena Lörzer and I will research the aftermath of “denazification” on recent generations and how wealth and power in Germany accrued over the last decades. We will build a labyrinth in which young Germans can discover the context and situations their grandparents didn’t tell them about. This project is supported by the research fund of the Berlin senate.

Das Jenseitige Amt

the other side

Das jenseitige Amt

still from the trailer of “the other side”

In the beginning there was a thought experiment: my mother was a progressive intellectual who left the Church various times. Nonetheless, Catholic doctrine affected her profoundly and she always returned. She is dead and I imagine her somehow above. In heaven. On a cloud. I am an atheist now but if I would convert to a religion,maybe become a muslim out of love or maybe a buddhist to find my spiritual self, after death I would end up in a different Beyond than hers. We would never be reunited.

Unless there was a travel agency for the various Beyonds, a place where you could go to organize your travel to another Beyond..

That is material for a film! A puppet film.

more info about the residency here

Besides content research and script writing I made a trailer for a Puppet Blockbuster during the residency:

In 2022 and 2023, I will run workshops with teenagers and adults on the subject of the Beyond and its different manifestations in human belief systems. These will partly be funded by the “Basisförderung” from the Berlin senate.

realized with the support of Schaubude Berlin and the Flausen Netzwerk.

#LADY CLOWN or opinions of a Clown

Performative experiment of a radical clownish-feminist philosophy

Imagine you go to see a talk of a well-known philosopher, Prof. Dr. Hagen B. Phousa, on the subject: the red nose as metaphore of phallogocentrism. Imagine the philosopher is late and while the audience is waiting for him, a wormhole opens up to spit out a clownlady from another galaxy acompannied by a flying clownfish. While you are still asking yourself what the heck is going on, the clownlady takes over the talk. She changes and corrects it, juggles with the words and turns it into a radical clown philosophy. Will you know by the end of the show what the word phallogocentrism really means and what the red nose has to do with it?

Müllrose – all inclusive/T4

A travel performance

Müllrose

Müllrose – all inclusive is a tour through Brandenburg. Müllrose – all inclusive is german reality: abandoned villages, biases, surprises, Spreewald pickles, everyday racism, and a lot of countryside.
In September 2017  Annemie Twardawa and Wanda Dubrau went on a research trip through Brandenburg. The roadtrip in a conspicuous red van led them through a German reality outside of the Berlin artist bubble.
Brandenburg is known as a region with increasingly many xenophobic asaults and the goal of our trip was to research this phenomenon and to collect stories from all perspectives.

Kratz –Eine chat-noir Geschichte

Mord, Betrug und Gier. Ohne meiner tödlichen Waffe, dem Zynismus, wäre ich dieser Welt gnadenlos ausgeliefert. Dieser abgrundtief bösen Welt, in der es immer nur regnet und man seinem eigenen Schatten nicht trauen darf. Denn nachts sind alle Katzen grau.

© Sebastian Arranz
